“For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son” (Colossians 1:13, NLT).

We love a good story—just look at how much money movies still take in at the box office, and now we can download as well as rent them. It seems we can’t get enough of knights jousting, going on quests and rescuing fair maidens, as movies and TV series continue the theme. Who doesn’t love a thrilling sword fight, with good triumphing over evil?

All good stories have their source in the pages of the Bible. We (humanity) are the fair maiden, trapped in the darkness of sin and death. God is the just king who sent his best knight to rescue us and bring us back to his kingdom of light, where goodness reigns and there is peace and plenty for all. It’s the true Camelot, but rather than just watching it, we get to live it—forever!
